– Using same yarn as head, cut 5 pieces of yarn for each wing and splay them outwards from the tip of the triangle.

LEGS (make 2) + BODY

Using green yarn,
R1: 6 Sc in magic ring (6 sts)
R2: 2 sc in each sc around (12 sts)
R3: Sc 12

For the first leg, fasten off (no need to leave long end for sewing).  For the second leg, do not cut off the yarn.  Chain 1 and join with slip stitch to any sc on first leg.  *Slip stitch in next sc around on same leg, Chain 1, then slip stitch to next sc on opposite leg*, rep 3 times.

The stitch count gets a little messy with these joins, so I single crocheted around the legs and joins for Row 4 as follows:

R4: Sc 22
R5-12: Sc 22

Fasten off and leave long end for sewing.  Stuff body and sew to head.

ARMS (make 2)

Using green yarn,
R1: 6 sc in magic ring. (6 sts)
R2-4: Sc 6

Fasten off and leave long end for sewing.  Attach to sides of body.

TAIL

Using green yarn,
R1: 4 sc in magic ring. (4 sts)
R2-3: Sc 4

R5: *Sc 2, 2 sc in next sc*, rep 2 times (8 sc)

Fasten off and leave long end for sewing.  Attach to bottom-back of Dragon to help give him balance.  If you want your Dragon to appear like he is leaning back and about to give out a puff of fire, angle the tail upwards.

Adding scaled detailing to body:
